In this course, instructor Greg Mirles walks us through the process of building a side-scroller level using both 3ds Max and Unreal engine 4. Here he will be covering his workflow for breaking down the concept, building and texturing the meshes, and then using a side-scroller UE4 blueprint to import the meshes and build the base game functionality.

(Students - please look under Section 1 / Lecture 1 downloads for the source files associated with the lesson.)
